What better way to start off Road To Success’ New Regular Feature ‘THEY SAID THAT’ than with her recent statement on the Sequester
THEY SAID THAT: Congresswoman Maxine Waters ‘170 Million Jobs’ Lost
The only problem is that there are not even 170 million jobs in America, only 134 million. Later, fortunately, for Waters, an aid slipped her a piece of paper with the correct amount of prospective jobs lost, a mere 750,000, with which she corrected herself
<h1>HOSPITAL MAKES A</h1> <h1>DIFFERENCE – CHOOSE BEST</h1> <h1>HOSPITAL</h1>
Many don’t consider they may have a choice of hospitals when going for inpatient or outpatient visits, but one’s choice of hospital can make a big difference, sometimes a life altering difference.
As the above chart indicates for a sampling of hospitals in the San Francisco Oakland East Bay Area, there is quite a range, from a high score of 62 at John Muir Concord to a low score of 44 at Sutter Delta medical center in antioch, for this small sampling. (Consomer Reports). There are at least two online safety score guides, ConsumerReports.org (as above) or <a href=”http://www.hospitalsafetyscore.org/”>http://www.hospitalsafetyscore.org/</a> There are overall scores, as above, or using ‘A,B,C ‘ grading as with http://www.hospitalsafetyscore.org/ , which are broken down specific categories where one can check the prominence of infections, frequency with which one must return to hospital following initial visit, costs, etc. For ConsumerReports you may need to sign up with them, though it may be the easier of the two systems to follow.
Surprisingly, some of the hospitals that you thought had great reputations may not be so popular with actual patients, themselves, who have spent time int he hospitals. Witness world reknown UCSF in San Francisco, which manages only a ‘B’ score (http://www.hospitalsafetyscore.org/) and John Muir Walnut Creek, which manages only a ’45’ (ConsumerReports.org)
We recently had personal experience at the two John Muirs noted above. We totally agree with the above nuimbers, finding John Muir Concord far superior, all around, as compared to John Muir Walnut Creek, surprisingly, despite the fact that the Walnut Creek has a brand new campus with the latest surgical tools and procedures. Of course, a major decision as to choice of hospital deals with the particular medical need, and different hospitals are also rated by medical procedure.
So, next time you or your loved one must go to a hospital you may want to check one or both above reports.
New Demographics Played Big Roll – California Minority
Now Majority of Voters Pay NONE or Little Taxes.
Obama’s handouts swing these voters who only gain and
lose nothing by voting for more taxes . This demographic of new
imigrants / minorities was promised more handouts by
voting for Proposition 30 and other tax increases.
Remember these are among almost 50% of Americans now paying
CALIFORNIA amd Divided States of America Future
California is looking more and more like a Socialist state as is much of Ameroica now, whereh only the lower income and very wealthy able ca afford to live. It has been a long time coming what with Obama’s increasing benefits to lower income (food stamps increased by $17 million,welfare up, free phones, etc) while middle class income went down $4,000 per family. According to Associate Press article, noted on John and Ken show (KFI late October), Prop 30 is deceptive,where most funds would NOT go to education but to infrastructure programs (like high speed rail – tens of billions of dollars, moving water from north to south, etc) and the teachers pension funds (Prop 38 was the one to truly help education. ) Brown has held education and schools hostage. Prop 30 was just a guise to help Brown move money around as he chooses. Another expected result will be more job losses.The pro-Prop 30 budget was ten times greater than the anti-30.
California is now a third world state and we will see more middle class people leaving the state in droves. Meanwhile, this new majority will have control and make things even worse for the middle class, the result much like we see in the many third world dictatorships around the world.
